ok i did not know that there was a tool for that

So how does it work i dont understand at all except for one way, because there is nothing for anything to latch onto unless that bolt in the middle of that shaft that the pulley goes onto comes off but also how would i grip that shaft with out damaging it to take out that center bolt?

If you used a hammer, you may very well never get the pulley back on. You have likely mushroomed the end of the hub to where the press fit will be too tight.

Looks exactly like what is on the end of the wrenches in the photo below. Threads into the center of the pump shaft.

if you have bled the air out of the pump by turning the steering wheel to the end of each turn both ways, several times,and made sure it was full and it still makes noise..i would say the pump is bad
